Seems like the Chief Minister Jagan and his team has no qualms for second thoughts on the ‘three-capital’ proposal. While the protests in the capital region are taking violent form with each passing day, a few of the political analysts speculated that the state government to hold the plans of capital shift. But the rumours from the secretariat lobbies have another story. Trusted sources revealed that the government is making arrangements to hold the next cabinet meeting in Visakhapatnam. This cabinet meeting took prominence with the government announcing that an ultimate decision over the capital will be taken in the next cabinet meeting on Dec 27th. Adding fuel to the already rife agitations, GNR committee’s report supporting the ‘three-capital’ proposal invited criticism.
Grapevine has it that the secretary has already passed instructions to the officials in Visakhapatnam to make necessary arrangement for the crucial cabinet meeting. Sources in Visakhapatnam also revolved that the state government is on a serious quest of government lands and buildings for shifting the administration. If this is believed to be true, chances are high that the farmers who are protesting from seven days in the capital regions might intensify their agitations against the government. According to the proposal made, Visakhapatnam would be the executive capital, Amaravati a legislative capital and Kurnool will be the judicial capital of the state. Jagan and his team further emphasised on the strong need to decentralise development in all the three regions.
